I am getting 230-260Mbps download via Lan, and did have the same on WIFI, until my Netgear Router crapped out.  Hopefully I can get back up to 260Mbps on WIFI again...currently I am at 130Mbps on WIFI.

Holy cow!  If I may ask, how much are you paying for that kinda speed?

I'm on 75Mbps with Comcast and stream 4K/HDR from Netflix/Amazon and play NVidia games with no issues at all.

I don't remember exactly how fast my Comcast connection is, but I would not give it up for anything Direct TV has to offer, I do a lot of audio/video streaming and like the flexibility of having the computer acting as an alternative media entertainment/business center with little performance glitches so i justify the higher price...
Best Regards,

You've got terrific speed! Even at 130Mbps, that's great.

The best thing is with the new speed is that I also cut my bill in half while staying with the same provider! Net bill is less than $40 a month with me supplying the modem.

I had issues streaming Netflix and Amazon in 4K even when I was getting 40 Megabit down through Mediacom Cable.   I upgraded to 100 Megabit service where I get 85-90 actual.  No more buffering, ever.

You guys make me puke!   >:(  Well, not you in particular -- just your speeds.  My DSL is 2.5mbs down (at best!).  My wireless internet is up to 20mbs down and has been extremely reliable for over a year -- but my cap is 10GB/mon or pay through the nose.   :'(

Where are you located? My parents are in Missouri, and they have horrible speeds too, but they just use it for FB so they are happy with it.

My location is the really sad part.  I'm just outside a major high tech center -- used to commute 30 minutes to RTP (Research Triangle Park) in central NC.  Our issue in this county is the lack of provider and a NC law that prohibits local communities from establishing their own broadband infrastructure in order to feed the few existing providers.  So in Chatham County, outside the major towns (none would qualify as cities), the only providers are TW and Centurylink.  TW refuses to serve my small community due to minimal population density, and Centurylink (which claims to provide 10mbs) provides the poor DSL. 

As it is, I went around Centurylink instead of using their "claimed" wireless service (they are a middleman for Verizon).  But many others (about 25% of the county) can't afford even the $60/mon base wireless let alone risk overages.  I understand that my situation is at an extreme (farther up my road, the DSL improves to 3mbs -- would you believe most of them still complain...   :P  In today's world even the high speed 10mbs is completely inadequate.  The supposed min norm according to the FCC is 25mbs.  Now that IS a joke!!!
